Angel Orensanz is the author of about 15 short movies that include landscapes and events that are part of his art productions worldwide. He uses techniques associated with the cinema verite and the narrative movie making. His visual stories and documentaries always include harrowing landscapes in which rocks, water and forests exude magic. Sculpture and context share always a leading role. The space around the art has always been part of the visual narrative that Angel Orensanz portrays. It was true in the 1970’s in Central Park and In Berlin; and in the Costa Brava in the 1980’s. And it has been a constant in his open space installations in America and Europe of the last 20 years.
